  • Hi Ayaan meena.

    You cannot convert a 32 bit installation of the operating system to a 64 bit one (or vice versa): you have to install the 64 bit version of the OS from scratch and reinstall all the applications you need yo use, provided that your system can support the installation and execution of a 64 bit operating system and that you can find all the necessary drivers for each installed device.

    Bye.

  • Hi Ayaan,

    We can't convert computer from 32bit to 64bit.

    As they are using different architecture, we need to reinstall computer with a 64bit installation disk.

    Bests,
